How to Be Cool on Facebook

For the new users of the networking site Facebook, this is a go-to guide for being cool with your crush online. Know how to "talk" to him or her and act on the site. (For girls). This may also work for real life as well.
  1. 1
    Strike up a conversation. Say something quirky, interesting and different. If you both like the same band, say "Hey I love (blah)! Do you have their new album?" Don't talk about how you were listening to their track when you accidentally dropped a wedding cake on your uncle's dog, or something unusual. Be truthful if you can, but there is probably some link you can make with something weird that has happened to you and something on their profile.
  2. 2
    Don't write overly long posts on their page. If you have something personal to say, then you should really say it in person or via private message. Say something cool answering their question and ask them about themselves. Then, end with a compliment so they want to talk to you again.
  3. 3
    Don't leave comments asking people about their status updates and relationship status changes unless you know them very well. Even then, keep them short so they feel that they have some space. Yes, they are putting information out there, but that doesn't mean you have to leap on it.
  4. 4
    Wait a few minutes before answering their first post, maybe 4 or 5. Be nice and make them want to talk to you. Don't ignore them for 20 minutes, then reply with something saying you don't care, because they will be put off, just like you would be in their situation!
  5. 5
    Think about posts before you write them, and wait 2 minutes between reading and posting the reply.
  6. 6
    Always delete embarrasing application addition stories from your mini-feed. (Do this by pressing the 'X' on the right of the story you think is embarrasing and then clicking 'Hide story').
  7. 7
    Have a few applications that you like, but don't invite all your friends to do hundreds of quizzes and then clog up your profile with 17 different "Are you snap, crackle or pop?" questionnaires.
  8. 8
    Don't send Bumper Stickers more than once a week.
  9. 9
    Change your status about once every 2 days, and clear it when you haven't done anything interesting recently, rather than "Kate has just eaten a sandwich". Keep it vague, so all the mystery of your exotic life is not revealed immediately.
  10. 10
    Change your profile picture roughly 2 weeks and pick carefully. Get in a good mood before you take it, smile casually, and pose in an interesting position. Be sexy and confident without being a slut.
  11. 11
    Don't make everything vulgar or about sex. Relax and show you are a normal person they want to talk to.
  12. 12
    10% of what people mean comes from their choice of words. Saying "I'm fine" can mean a thousand different things. Be clear, use occasional emoticons and don't stress over someone sending you 5 Xs instead of the usual 6.
  13. 13
    Use line break, commas and periods (full stops) to help people understand what you're saying. Also, use normal capitalization.
  14. 14
    Use ... but never write "dot dot dot". Vary the number of dots you use.
  15. 15
    Don't use obscure references.
  16. 16
    Be your normal, relaxed, cool self! Be relaxed, friendly and flirty if you need to be. Don't say anything that isn't true, and bad things you say about people will just come back to you.
  17. 17
    Smileys are nice, as long as you don't use them in every post and don't get too crazy.
  18. 18
    Don't always rush to agree with everything. A bit of a game is more fun than one person worshipping the other.
  19. 19
    Smile in pictures, and shut your eyes. It looks cute. Also, look down in a few pictures.
  20. 20
    Don't use a photo that has you with all your friends, it should ideally be you alone, you might not be the only person on the planet with your name- if an old friend comes looking for you, this multi-person profile pic will just confuse them
  21. 21
    A few simple things: Express Yourself, Be Yourself and Have Fun. Try to take cool quizzes and make sure all active friends of yours are on News Feed!!! That way if their friends come they'll say "Wow that sounds really cool. and then they add you."
  22. 22
    When taking your profile picture, don't do push your lips out trying to do the "pouty" face. It will just make you look stupid.
